Equity and Diversity

Group of diverse studentsPenn State Erie, The Behrend College, believes that a liberal education should prepare students for a lifetime of professional success and intellectual engagement. Accordingly, it is important for students to participate in a community of scholars that includes the diverse perspectives and life experiences that they will encounter over the course of their life. In order to underscore its commitment to providing a rigorous education, Penn State Behrend has developed a definition of diversity, a diversity plan, and offers a number of  services and resources dedicated to fostering a diverse environment across the college.
